After a great visit in Cacak Serbia we are on our way to Sarajevo, why? Well I guess I remember the Olypics there and wanted to see it. So we set our Garmin and off we went, now with no horn in our car. Enjoyed the stunning scenery along the way even if it was a bit raining.

Bosnia has recovered from the war better near the sea than in the east, Sarajevo was a bit of a shocker to see, still bullet holes visable in the walls of buildings, still standing are partially destroyed apartment buildings and homes. Driving in it looks like a typical city of the west but a closer look shows the saddness of it all. The people going on about their lives amongest the rubble and distruction , no money to rebuild or tear down the damaged buildings. It is surrounded by the Dinaric Alps and the Miljacka River, which made for stunning background scenery

.We did find a lovely hotel in the middle of it all, the people were kind but there was a light missing in their eyes. Sorry this all sounds so deep but it just bothered me, the Sarajevo that I remember seeing in 1984 was gone.

It was here in our hotel room at 11:00 pm that we recieved an email telling us our Visas for Spain were ready and we were to pick them up with 30 days. They weren't suppose to be ready for 3 to 6 months, we had trips planned.

So unfortunatly Sarajevo did not get the attention it deserved, our focus now was on rebooking flights and arrangements for Maxx and making it back to Spain to find a place to live. All in their time line.
